It has been suggested that it would be helpful to have, in addition to the set of example programs supplied with BBC BASIC for Windows, versions of those programs with extra comments and/or more meaningful variable and procedure/function names. This would make it easier to understand the programs, at the expense of making them (in many cases) too big to run under the trial version of BB4W.
To avoid wasteful duplication of effort, this page has been created so that anybody interested in doing this work may 'claim' responsibility for one or more of the programs. In order to do so please add your name to the table below. If you subsequently change your mind, or find you don't have the time, please remove your name so that somebody else can take over. It might also be helpful to add a note indicating progress.
It may well be that some of these programs are not suitable candidates for commenting. In some other cases it may be appropriate to modify the program (for example to bring it more up to date) as well as annotating it. These can be noted in the table too.
